was one of the people, we referred to george bush as king george a lot of us. that's how we saw george bush and his administration. i really don't think there's much of a threat to the checks and balances. it's no more a threat to our democracy than the senate or the senate rule and filibuster, t the -- one senator's ability to hold a nomination of the president up. the need to get 67 votes in the senate, to get anything done. all these things are the checks and balances and any president deserves -- needs -- he's the only one elected nationwide. no one else is, all the senators and members and districts are states. he's got to use that power to get what he wants done. then, yes, the other checks and balances and the courts can step in. i don't think there's anything -- this is not unusual. obama is not doing anything any other president, particularly george bush didn't do. >> mark, to joe's point there, the president has to use his power to get things done. lot of people say that involves building relationships on capitol hill persuading people with meetings and consensus. the critici

serve on that court are people who were appointed by george w. bush to the courts. host: tell us about changes you'd like to make guest: the system certainly is not working very well have a court to that simply uses a rubber stamp and allows for every single request, there is no genuine oversight being conducted. the deeper problem here is that the wrong judgments are being made concerning what is relevant. the statute is clear that in order to collect any information under any circumstances, domestically, that information has to be relevant to the investigation of terrorism by a foreign person. that is why we have the defense department to protect us from actions by foreigners, not actions by americans. there has been a clear line drawn since the 1870's. that the fence department is supposed to defend us from foreign enemies. domestically, we rely upon the fbi and the department justice. notwithstanding, for the past few years, the nsa has gone wild and conducted domestic surveillance on literally every single american, all 320 million people who have a telephone. that is wrong and un

george w. bush at this point. would i say that his quiver of solutions is sparse. raising taxes on rich people. that is the extent of his plan for righting the economy. we just did that in january and it didn't work. bill: doug, your turn. >> needless to say i don't share the view. first i think there is plenty of blame to go around and tucker, with all derao respect the american people still blame george w. bush as much as they blame president obama. part of the reason for that is republicans in congress are arguably more discredited than an administration that i have a lost problems with. the president stablize the economy. he did for the first time propose ad grand bargain. my take is different from both sides. we have to work together this is silly we're fighting. tucker, rush, let's get together to try to have a grand bargain to solve american problems, not democratic or republican problems. bill: seems like we went down that road. got nowhere with it. rush limbaugh has a theory why the president governs the way he does. the theory can be heard right now. limbaugh. >> theory is tha

during george w. bush's administration. and julian zelizer. he's a princeton university professor of history and public affairs, and is the author of a book on the politics of national security. secretary chertoff, it's been said that director mueller had to oversee the transformation of the f.b.i. from a crime-fighting agent city to a national security one. in practical term what is did that mean? what had to change at the f.b.i.? >> well, of course, the f.b.i. continues to be a crime fighting mission but intelligence and prevention have to be equal priorities with prosecuting and punishing crimes after that they occur and that meant creating a career path that will foster the development of an intelligence capability. it meant to some degree centralizing the activities of what used to be a widely decentralized agency so you could have a coordinated approach to dealing with counterterrorism and perhaps most important it meant taking the f.b.i. overseas, putting them into the field, getting them involved, working side by side with our men in uniform and women in uniform to collect

and conservatives. bruce bartlett, senior policy analyst in the reagan and george h.w. bush administration said, republicans have a problem, people are increasingly concerned about unemployment, but republicans have nothing to offer them. the g.o.p. opposes additional government spending for jobs programs and in fact favors big cuts in spending that would likely lead to further layoffs at all levels of government. these constraints, mr. bartlett said, have led republicans to embrace the idea that government regulation is the principle factor holding back employment. they assert barack obama has unleashed a tidal wave of new regulations which has created uncertainty in businesses. he concludes, no hard evidence is offered for this claim, it is simply asserted as self-evident repeated d -- endlessly as if, if you say is enough, people will believe it. on the related argument that regulations create business uncertainty, mr. bartlett has said, regular uncertainty is a canard invented by republicans that allow them to use economic problems to pursue an agenda supported by the business community ye

as even can for this president. though this program started under george bush. i do not think edward snowden would have had the courage to come out with something like this during that administration because we would not even know where he was right now if he was anywhere. guest: i am sympathetic. i think many in his theynistration know better. know there is a first amendment that whistleblowers need to be protected. he campaigned to get national security whistle-blowers and intelligence whistle-blowers equal rights to other federal employees. i was at that meeting where his administration backed off the promise is very early on. capitulated to the same special interests. it has been that way for all the residents.bush, everybody has gone along with the exception of intelligence. it is disappointing, extremely disappointing, but that is the nature of our political system right now.it's up to the american people to voice their concerns. demand all federal employees need the safe, effective channels to voice concerns and will lead to a full review of their concerns. we need to push for

to mind the words of sheila bexar a george w. bush administration official who in february urged her fellow republicans to remember that from lincoln's transcontinental railroad to eisenhower's highway system, republicans have understood that investing in critical infrastructure projects creates jobs and expands the economy. and yet the appropriations bill that was on the floor this week would have cut $2 billion from the department of transportation. it was a total rejection of the lincoln-eisenhower tradition. e have spent $87 billion rebuilding the infrastructure of afghanistan and just to -- just approved $5 billion more. according to the united states inspector general, supporters of the taliban and al qaeda are getting contracts and far too much will be wasted due o-- due to insufficient oversight. this, mr. speaker is appalling and it's time to do nation building here at home. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. for what purpose does the gentleman from oklahoma seek recognition? without objection, the gentleman from oklahoma is recognized for one minute.

terrorism was partially because george w. bush hated in the muslim world. despite his speech in cairo, despite his efforts to close guantanamo, despite his elimination of the use of the term war on terror, al qaeda continues to hate america. and even as i speak to you here today, they continue to plan attacks against america here and around the world. the president's not alone in failing to confront these threats. i'm afraid because of the success we've had in preventing another attack on the scale of 9/11, some of our leaders in both parties have been lulled into a sense of false security. i certainly support the privacy rights and expectations of all americans. but my colleagues, i also know for a fact that the surveillance programs that our government used have prevented attacks and saved american lives. i think it's a mistake to dismiss privacy concerns as crazy. after all, we have a government whose tax collecting agency targeted americans because of their political views. but it's also a mistake to exaggerate them. after all, if a known terrorist is e-mailing or calling someone
